Our experience at Riad Abhar was pleasant enough: the staff were helpful, the place was clean and peaceful and location was good, very close to the square Djemma-El Fnaa. There were a few things that could have been better such as:
Food choices - We went as part of a kgb deal and we had breakfast and either lunch or dinner included in the package. Breakfast was good but for lunch/dinner, we ate tajine everyday, which is a fantastic dish and was very well cooked but it would have been nice to have some variety such as couscous, kefta or pastilla. There wasn´t an option to choose other dishes so if you wanted to go vegetarian you couldn´t. As you have breakfast on the courtyard, you need to be careful not to raise your voice as all other room are facing it and you can easily wake up other guests (we were awoken by a very loud group one morning)
Room - the room was on the small side but as there was only two of us, it wasn´t a major problem. I understand that the bathroom was in original Moroccan style but the shower would splash water all over the floor to the flooding point! the toilet wasn´t fixed to the floor and the pipes kept making a loud bleeping sound throughout the day.
Service - we never received our complimentary welcome pastries as 'it was too late´, the jacuzzi was supposed to be opened until 16.00 but the day we wanted to use it wasn´t working and the restaurant didn´t have any other drinks other than water (which is fine but we requested other drinks and even though they told us would be made available, never came)
The place it´s difficult to find at first but we were picked up from the airport (A great advantage) and once you a shown the way it is easy to go from and come back to. The morning tour that was included in the deal was great and the guide (Fatima I think) was fantastic and very knowledgeable.
